Review From Library Journal
A follow-up to Women Living with Multiple Sclerosis (LJ 4/1/99), this edited collection of e-mail "conversations" provides anecdotal and personal information contributed by women with multiple sclerosis
. The "MS Sisters
" discuss how they deal with their disability and their reactions to a variety of situations and challenges. One woman writes, "Never give up. Having MS isn't any fun, that's for sure. But it's not terminal and not always horrible. Keep a positive attitude." Another says about her diagnosis: "In many respects it was a relief to know that there was a physical cause and that I wasn't just 'cracking up.' " Although this book is not designed to provide medical information, the insights provided can be a source of affirmation and consolation to other readers with MS. Recommended for all general health collections, caregivers, and physicians of MS patients.
